AC Milan and Eintracht Frankfurt are closing in on being able to announce permanent deals for Ante Rebic and Andre Silva respectively, a report claims.
According to SportBild in Germany (as cited by Calciomercato.com), Eintracht have decided to move early and sign André Silva permanently, who landed in Germany last year on a two-year loan until 2021, the same formula that brought Rebic to Milan.
The Portuguese striker convinced everyone, scoring 16 goals and adding five assists in 38 games last season.
The report adds how it will be a double deal, as Milan have been working for weeks to sign Rebic from Frankfurt permanently, talking with his agent Fali Ramadani and with Fiorentina who will collect 50% of the sale due to a clause.
In the coming days they will intensify contacts with the Bundesliga club.
Back to Silva, In order not to record a loss Milan have to collect at least €15.2million for the former Porto man, but the figure will be higher in order to obtain a capital gain.
Even if the redemptions of André Silva by Eintracht and Rebic by AC Milan are two separate negotiations, which travel on different operations, the choice of Eintracht to accelerate for Silva implies the availability to find an agreement over Rebic with the Rossoneri, for whom the Croatian is a priority.
